Autoplay on internal hard drive

Hi,

on my Local Disk E I have Autoplay option. How I can remove it from context menu and command bar? On Local Disk C,D,F where is no Autoplay, only on E disk. All disks I can open with double click. Also I made search of autorun.inf file but where is no on any disk. Anybody has any ideas? Thanks

I want to disable autoplay ONLY from INTERNAL hard drives + autoplay shouldn't be on internal hard drives.

It shouldn't be enabled for any devices, actually, if you've kept up with some of the vulnerabilities that have come out involving it in the past 6 months. Like you said, you already can double-click to open any of the drives in there.

What type of disk is E: that makes it different than the others? Care to show us a screenshot of Device Manager showing your drives?

Actually, what shows in Device Manager doesn't matter. Here's how to disable autoplay for specific drives:

Do I understand good?

Quote:
0x1 - Disables AutoPlay on drives of unknown type.

0x4 - Disables AutoPlay on removable drives.

0x8 - Disables AutoPlay on fixed drives.

0x10 - Disables AutoPlay on network drives.

0x20 - Disables AutoPlay on CD-ROM drives.

0x40 - Disables AutoPlay on RAM drives.

0x80 - Disables AutoPlay on drives of unknown type.

0xFF - Disables AutoPlay on all types of drives.

Default "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer" NoDriveTypeAutoRun value is 0x91 (145) which means: 0x1 (unknown type), 0x80 (unknown type) and 0x10 (network drives) = 0x91

So if I want to add fixed drives: 0x91+0x8=0x99 and I have to enter registry in hexadecimal base 99 number?

Thanks for help

So every time my computer starts up it loads the startup apps and then loads an AutoPlay window for my second hard drive. Any ideas on why that is happening? It seems like the drive is connecting after Windows is started to me, but that doesn't make sense to me, because it is an internal 500GB...
